On the Mend.

Today is the end of week 3, and my foot is getting better.   I can finally put weight on it without feeling pain, but still have discomfort with some tendons on the top left of foot.  I finally gave in and listened to my podiatrist and put my foot in a boot for 3 days, which did help.   I attempted to run twice in the 3 weeks which was a foolish idea.  I usually run through injuries, but having a foot injury is a different story.    Basically i strained the tendons in my foot and around my ankle,  my foot really started to hurt during my NYC Barefoot run.

I can’t really pin point when this injury happened, strains are a gradual injury and they are tough to determine when it exactly happened, but I think I have good idea when I did it.  I am sure it happened when I was messing around with my older son in the back yard jumping over lawn furniture, and off the picnic table.  I think it’s time to give up lawn furniture jumping,  I’m 40 not 20.

Anyways being out of commission for this long is new territory for me.  I was cranky, angry, and depressed at times.  I think the psychological aspects is more difficult to handle than the actually injury.  I learned allot from this injury, mainly just to appreciate running in its simplistic form.   It’s a beautiful fall morning right now, and a perfect day for a run,  I might test out the foot and see what happens, if it’s a no go I will not push it.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
